Callaway Rolls Royces

From Flckr comes this description and photograph:

"Callaway R.R.s

Behind a house in Callaway, Va. these Rolls Royces have been sitting for years. I think there used to be a third one.
Now I don't really care about R.R.s but I do believe if I owned several sedans and a convertible I'd sell one of the sedans so that I could at least put the convertible IN A FRICKIN' GARAGE!
I don't know anything about why these are setting outside sinking into the ground, it just looks stupid to me."

Abandoned Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow

I do agree with the statement.

So knowing that these cars were somewhere in Callaway, Va USA, I just had to get the Google Maps out and find them from the sky.

Which I did. Here is the satellite image.

And here is the Street View image.

It is a bit shocking.

I live near this house- its owned by 2 men who live in roanoke. They own the house but never care for it. Local teens go and scavenge through the house. When it was first bougth it was a million dollar property.

You should have seen it about two years ago when the cars both still had their grills and ornaments! I guess after over a decade someone saw $$$ and took them. At $800 a pop for an ornament, well...

I was told someone offered to buy the house and the owners had no interest in selling. Just letting it rot. Makes no sense to me. What an absolute waste of something, not only, worth money but that someone else would love (meaning cars and house).
